Two things of note in this revelation. The first is the astonishing number of Democratic House members who not only belong to the Socialist Party of America but even more incredible, don’t mind if people find out about it.
From the Discover The Networks : “Until 1999, the Progressive Caucus website was hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America. After the press reported on this link, the connections suddenly vanished from both organizations’ websites.”
As DTN also points out, the Progressive Caucus works hand in glove with George Soros funded ‘Progressive Challenge,’ which is a project of the hard left Institute for Policy Studies.
from the American Thinker.
Hon. Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) is the Arizona Congressman who said (and I paraphrase) “go ahead and boycott Arizona. We deserve it” over the immigration law that is now tangled up in court thanks to Eric Holder’s DOJ.
Is it any wonder we are in such a mess when we have this many far leftists in Congress?

Hell really has frozen over!
John Podesta with communist Van Jones
Podesta served on the staff of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) from 1981 to 1988. Leahy was an early advocate of circumventing the U.S. Constitution by gaining control over federal courts. Podesta assisted Leahy in pioneering the indiscriminate smearing and filibustering of any and all Republican judicial nominees — a practice previously unknown in Washington.
In 1988 Podesta teamed up with his brother Anthony to form the Washington lobbying firm Podesta Associates. One of their first clients was Michael Dukakis. John Podesta served as opposition research director — commonly dubbed a “dirt digger” — for Dukakis’ 1988 presidential campaign.
